Buffalo Bills’ Marshawn Lynch Arrested On Felony Gun Charges

February 16, 2009 at 1:13 am Leave a comment


Buffalo Bills’ Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in California yesterday. This is not the first time that Lynch has been involved with the law.

The police report stated that officers saw a 2006 Mercedes Benz with three men inside, one of which they recognized as former California running back Marshwan Lynch.

“A subsequent field investigation led to the discovery of a loaded firearm,” the report said. “The officers determined the gun belonged to Lynch and he was arrested for possession of a concealed firearm.”

So they stopped the vehicle because Marshawn Lynch was inside? Were they just hoping to get an athlete in trouble? Did black men in a Mercedes make it a need to pull a car over? This whole “subsequent field investigation” by the police is a little more like “suspicious field investigation”. I understand that gun safety is a huge deal in the NFL after the Plexiglass Burress incident, but that idiot shot himself. You had to do something with that moron. Lynch was concealing a weapon and not acting a fool. Perhaps he should be able to conceal seeing as how he has been the subject of a drive-by just three years ago.

Athletes are in the spotlight and they have to watch every move they make, I understand that. But if an athlete is minding his own business and not blatently breaking the law…leave ’em alone. Now, if they were to arrest him because of his unfortunate looks…that would be a little more justified.
